Flyin' Miata is ready for Targa Newfoundland this year, with two greatly improved cars.
Targa Newfoundland is a challenging race. And in 2008, the crew at Flyin' Miata found that, while their car had the handling capability to tackle the corners, it lacked the power they needed, and they came in 16th. They're guessing that they can do a bit better this year, and that's because their 1994 Mazda Miata has a 5.3-liter Chevy L33 V8, which is putting out 400 horsepower. They're also running a supercharged 2006 MX-5 with 240 horsepower.
Seeing a '94 Miata making small-block V8 noises can be a bit disorienting, but we mean that in the best sense possible. Enjoy the video.
